 Hutong in Mongolian languages means water well. Hutong history can be traced back to 700 years ago. At that time, Beijing was a city lacking in water, and water resources was crucial to people’s living , so local people’s houses formed around digged water well.

 Si He Yuan, depicts the typical courtyard where local people’ live. Usually, rooms located on four sides of the yard were assigned to different people to live according to Chinese Fengshui culture: elder people in the north, son in the east, daughter in the west while servants live in the south.

 The life pace inside the Hutong is slower than modern avenues. The narrowness of the Hutong discourages heavy traffic. So we often can see local residents, especially the elder generation playing cards, Chinese Chess or just chatting with each other relaxingly.
